Yura! David Thelander of Straddie Kingfisher Tours tells us this is one of his favourite Indigenous words. It means welcome, and it originates from the local community of Minjerribah (Stradbroke Island). Welcome is exactly how Dave (commonly known as Barefoot Dave by the locals) aims for all of his guests to feel when they step foot onto the beautiful, culturally rich and nature abundant island of Minjerribah. Straddie Kingfisher Tours is an Indigenous-owned company that has set out to not only showcase the copious amounts of wildlife residing on the island but also to provide a uniquely authentic Indigenous immersive experience.
We would like to extend a warm welcome to Yuraygir Walking Experiences and congratulate them on achieving Advanced Ecotourism certification on four of their tours!
